Cobblestone Valley is a diversified organic farm certified by NOFA-NY, located in the heart of New York State right off Interstate 81 -exit 13. We are 20 minutes south of Syracuse and 10 minutes north of Cortland in the small town of Preble.
The backbone of the farm is dairy, with all other enterprises connected to and synergistic with milk production. In addition to the dairy, we produce certified organic pastured poultry, which includes both broilers and turkey, and certified organic pick-your-own strawberries . We also produce pastured eggs, grass-fed beef, pastured pork, and compost. We are members of Organic Valley/CROPP Cooperative, which is a national, farmer-owned, farmer-operated co-op based in LaFarge, Wisconsin. The coop sells products in the region that they were produced. If local organic food is important to you, then please support Organic Valley!
At the present time the farm is in the fourth generation of the Knapp family and we are doing our utmost to preserve, conserve, and rebuild the wonderful soil resources in our valley. In organic farming we use nature as our teacher and we believe that all health begins with the soil and as such, our soils are our most precious resource. Healthy soils grow healthy plants, which produce healthy animals and, in turn, healthy people.
We'd like to take a moment to thank you for your interest in locally grown foods. We sincerely hope that your interest will lead to your support of a local and thereby much more sustainable food infrastructure. Very often, the first step is the most difficult one to take. Once you've taken that first step towards purchasing locally, it all becomes much easier! If there is a product you are interested in that we don't carry, we can often direct you to a local vendor that does.
We do not ship our products.
The last chicken date for this year is September 18-19; and these are red birds. We do have some that are as yet unsold. Thinking about a Thanksgiving turkey yet? As of September 7, we have about 20 turkeys left - and they usually go fast. Complete information about our birds can be found on our website - address elsewhere in our farm listing on Local Harvest.
Certified organic U-Pick strawberries are in season from mid-June to early July.
